Daily Work As A Carpenter
Following on from our post of A Day in the Life of a Labourer it’s time to give you the next installment with our saw-handed friends and masters of wood, our chippy colleagues – carpenters! In this post we’ll give you a flavour of what it’s like to be a carpenter and if you like the sound of it, you can apply to become a HLH carpenter yourself! For now, let’s hear about one of our carpenters, Chris, who hails from Cardiff but had been on the books here with us in Sydney for over a year and is a dab hand with a framing hammer!
Working as a carpenter is a fun job as no two days are ever the same. I have been working with Hunter Labour Hire for one year now and they have given me a wide variety of jobs throughout Sydney. My first job was framing on a job in Mosman, I worked here for 3 months this job was provided to me by Joe. I also worked on a three-storey new build where my role was to complete the roofing and the wall frames on the 3rd floor. Working with the same company for 3 months made me feel like part of the team as I got to know everyone on site. I finished up once the framing was completed.
Bondi 2nd Fix
I was then provided with a 2nd fix job in Bondi by Laird, I enjoyed this job as the work was very high-end and something quite new to me. I worked here for 6 weeks during this period I was working on door jams, hanging doors, skirting and architraves.
This project was my favourite and I worked on it for 6 months where we did everything from framing to 2nd fix. During the 6 month stint the client made me feel like one of the team. We were a team of 3 carpenters on the project and I found the job varied and interesting. Working on this I learned a lot of new skills and was also able to showcase some of my joinery experience in the finishing stages of the project.
I’ll Be Back!
I have recently finished on this project as I have had to leave Hunter Labour Hire to complete my regional work. But, I am looking forward to coming back and working for Hunter Labour Hire again as they kept me in consistent work and always provided me with good jobs. The time sheets and payroll are very easy, and any issues are dealt with swiftly.
